Pamela Ban

Welcome!  I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego.  I received my Ph.D. in Political Economy and Government from Harvard University in 2018.

My research interests are in American political institutions and cover legislative politics, Congress, interest groups, and information in policymaking.  I use new empirical approaches and novel data sources to answer questions about how political institutions influence the behavior of political actors and policy outcomes in American politics.  My research has been published in the American Political Science Review, Quarterly Journal of Political Science, Legislative Studies QuarterlyBusiness and Politics, and Political Science Research & Methods.
